Oh Come All Ye Faithful...

It's time to get serious about Christmas cards and getting them ready to send out.  I have several here and there ready to go, but really need MORE!

So, here's one I made from a card I spotted by Brian King.  I love his simple layouts and bold borders.  I changed up the colors and added some of our pretty gold thread.


Recipe:

Base:  Early Espresso - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4"
Very Vanilla - 5 1/4" x 4"
Early Espresso - 4 1/2" x 2 1/4"
Crumb Cake - 4 1/4" x 2"
DSP - Sweet Li'l Things


I stamped the image onto the Sweet Li'l Things Designer Series Paper (DSP) and onto Shimmery White card stock.  I used an aqua painter to color with ink from the lids of Blushing Bride and Marina Mist.  I also used Soft Suede and Daffodil Delight.  Then with some fussy cutting I cut out the watercolored image and attached it to the stamped image on the DSP.


I punched the DSP images with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch and Early Espresso was cut using the Circles Framelits Dies.


I wrapped Gold Metallic Thread around my fingers several times and attached it to the back of the Early Espresso circle with some tape and then popped up the circle with Stampin' Dimensionals.
